The Mets’ offense is getting it together as Ruben Tejada is hitting .315 in his past 15 games and Curtis Granderson has homered three times in his past seven games. Expect the offensive momentum from Monday’s wild 4-3 series-opening victory to carry over to Tuesday as the Over is 5-1 in Mets’ last 6 home games.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Braves RH Julio Teheran (8-5, 2.29 ERA) vs. Mets RH Jacob deGrom (1-5, 3.77)
Teheran hit 13 batters in 185 2/3 innings last season, but has plunked only three in 126 innings this year. He should come back down to earth from here on out.
DeGrom has won just once in his first 10 starts. He needs the run support from New York to improve.
